Arizona State Parks Hold 16 First Day
Hikes throughout Arizona on January 1
(Phoenix, AZ – December 4, 2014) – Each year the National Association of State Park Directors (NASPD) announces a national collaboration of all 50 State Park systems across America to sponsor guided “First Day Hikes” on New Year’s Day. Arizona State Parks will charge day-use entrance fees only for the First Day Hikes at 16 different parks on January 1, 2015. For information on hike locations and details visitAZStateParks.com/fdh.
According to State Parks Director Bryan Martyn, “We are providing a variety of hikes all across Arizona and hope families will take advantage and get outside and unplugged from their video games and other electronic media.”
Arizona’s “First Day Hikes” offer individuals and families an opportunity to begin the New Year re-energizing and connecting with the outdoors by taking a healthy walk at one of these 16 State Parks. Details about hike locations, difficulty and length, terrain and tips regarding proper clothing are listed on the Arizona State Parks website atAZStateParks.com/fdh. You can also keep up with new information about activities in Arizona State Parks through Facebook and Twitter at AZStateParks. As a part of this program, the Arizona State Parks listed below will offer guided hikes on January 1, 2014 so get out those boots and go hike!
ALL HIKES: Wear warm clothes in layers, bring one liter of water, hat, sunscreen, good walking shoes, walking stick, binoculars and a camera for your hike! There are always good photo opportunities on these hikes. Also be sure to check with the park for details about the hike before you leave to be sure there are no changes to the hike for that day due to the weather. Some hikes require reservations and some don’t allow dogs. Children younger than six years old may need to be carried throughout the hike so plan to hike with backpacks.
